Ok.. so it is official now...








I have resigned from Arkansas Business Publishing Group, effective this Friday, October 14, 2005!!


No, I do not have a new job yet.

No, I am not sure what I am going to do.

Yes, I am going to take a bit of time off. BUT..

Yes, I am going to start job searching next week.

No, I am not sure what I WANT to do yet.
Yes, I am crazy.


and, finally,


NO, I am not pregnant! =)
(*this is the current rumor circulating around work)


I love the company, I love my boss, and love the people I work with. However, I am not interested/happy with my position anymore and it's driving me crazy!! there is no other department I can see myself in, so it is time to move on!


Susan is throwing me a going away lunch on Friday if anyone wants to come! If anyone is looking for a job in the IT/Research Dept of Arkanas Business as a database administrator, let me know!

More news on the job search to come... and so it begins.

QUITTER!

Good luck with the job search. The most important thing is to find a job you like. I spent the longest year of my life at Alltel in a position that didn't interest me in the least. Not that I didn't learn ALOT, but happiness in your job is by far more important.

Good Luck Kat!!! Maybe you could be a housewife and bake Karl yummy pies all day?

katandkarl said...

=)

and i might go insane at our home all the time. i know "IT" is out there i just have to find it....
or at least something i semi-enjoy!

leslie said...

Wow....good luck with the search. I am glad that you will be finding something that you will enjoy.

Lauryl said...

i hate you. i wish i could just up and decide to quit working, too. it must be nice to quit work just cuz you don't like it.

Lauryl said...

really, i love you. i'm just insanely jealous.

Jackie!!! said...

Wow. I had NO idea. Well, way to go for what makes you happy, woman!!! I'm really proud of you for going for it as cheesy as it sounds!Good luck and if there's anything I can do, lemme know!! I realize I have no connections in your area of business OR in Little Rock, but hey..its the thought, right?:) Keep us all updated!!

Leah Billings said...

Way to go! I can totally relate to the feelings you've been having. You won't believe how good it's gonna feel when you leave the office on your last day! I was in total heaven when I left my job last May. I also think taking a break is a good idea. Technically, I'm still on one (if you don't count all the work I do for school). Don't get stressed out about finding something new right away. Everything will fall into place eventually and you'll wake up one morning and realize that you are exactly where you want to be. :)

Susan said...

I can't believe you'd do this to me. Just kidding. I'm proud of you for actually having the balls to quit and find something better. Good luck, and don't forget me! Seriously, we have to keep in touch. P.S. The going-away lunch is at Whole Hog at 11:30.

Cassie said...

Good luck! I think Brooke may have jinxed you! I hope you find something that fits perfectly. Hope to see you all soon.

emily and eric said...

brooke said...

what? kat's pregnant?

ha, just kidding...i guess that's how rumors get started...

congrats and best of luck. remember, it's always the last place you look (cause you'd be silly if you kept on looking)

Elizabeth Ross said...

I heard Kat's pregnant!
Nooooooo... just kidding. Way to go on your new, new, new chapter of life (post-wedding, post-dogs)!

congrats you're having a baby!!! said...

jen said tard box. What will that cunning wordsmith come up with next? Kat, this move is extreeeemely uncharacteristic of you, but you did the right thing. Two words: you and Karl should move to the beach and live in a tent next to the ocean.

John said...

What are you going to name the baby? Is It a boy or girl?

Marc said...

"Two words: you and Karl should move to the beach and live in a tent next to the ocean."

They aren't Blake.

Oh, and best of luck to you Kat. I hear natural childbirth really isn't nearly as painful as the movies make it out to be.

emily and eric said...

i heard that it's twins and they are naming them eric and emily!!!!
